The only action that can alleviate fear is preparation.
Preparation in taking key concepts.
Preparation in breaking them down to thier least complex forms.
Preparation in using thier functions multilaterally after we come to an understanding of thier meaning.
Preparation in drilling thier concepts until we are squeezing them out of our engorged cortex,down the peripheral CNS to the motor units in our calm,skilled,and trained pressure points of manual dexterity that give no witness to our unconnected,irrational fear of success.
If we succede in fooling everyone,and actualy become nurses,then we damm sure better cram all the knowledge we can now,because when that day comes.........................it's just you and the patient. There won't be any instructor to fear,just our ineptitude.
Now if it's a psych test,then just forget it. Nobody remembers that crap 10 mins after they take the final.
What I'm saying is,you should fear the test the day your handed the syllabus.then you will not need to fear the test when you are taking it.
